The Defense Department invites companies to participate in its 2020 DoD Acquisition Public-Private Talent Exchange Program. The six-month exchange program provides the opportunity for mid-career private sector and government acquisition professionals to gain improved understanding of each other’s business operations and share innovative best practices.
Through the insights of both private-sector and DOD participants, companies will develop a better understanding of the needs and challenges of their government customers. Companies in the exchange will have the ability to implement new insights and take a proactive approach to addressing present and future government challenges and creating innovative solutions to meet client needs.
A reciprocal approach will be used; there will be one government participant for each company participant, but it is not a job swap. Participants will continue to be compensated by their employer throughout the duration of the exchange.
Please visit for more information. Companies interested in participating may contact Ms. Aissa Tovar at
